Posted:oh dear

he just made it officially a holy war

anyone for Crusades? A new Spanish Inquisition perhaps?

I normally wouldn't advocate assassination, but someone really needs to get this man OUT of office. It's like having Prince Philip as your national ambassador (you know... him that has a habit of saying "your problem is you're all foreigners")

Posted:I would have started a thread about this, but then decided not to. I'm so tired of people hearing me rant about Bush and assume I'm ranting about Americans. Also, they think when I rant about America, I'm ranting about Americans. That's not true. I have exactly 2 things to say about this:

1. If it was a piece of political maneuvering, then all kudos to whoever wrote the script, because it's made it difficult for religious extremists to accuse America and the West of being "Godless".

2. If it was actually meant... then it means that the most powerful nation on earth is governed by a man who hears voices in his head... umm


After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

I may disagree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

Posted:in some ways it seems like Bush has thought "wow, some of them are blaming this on God, that's not a bad idea"

We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Posted:George Bush is a piece of [censored]. I hate him. Plus John Howard is like "yes Georgy Porgy I'Il do what ever you say...why of course you can rape me up the ass"

OMG! Seriously, if God exists I think there's a fairly low chance that He would be like "Ooooh those evil muslims! Let's get this village idiot from Texas to wage a crusade against them because then the whole world will be 'liberated'"

Adolf Hitler thought he was a good christian too.

Posted:so god tells him to do this? did he ever think of the whole, "thou shalt not kill" part? funny.

it's interesting that a comedian once said "did you ever notice how when we talk to god, we're said to be praying, but when god talks back, we're said to be schizophrenic?" starting to look more and more like he was right on the money.

The US, he warned, "makes no distinction between those who commit acts of terror and those who support and harbour them because they're equally as guilty of murder".



Surely he can see the irony in what he says, i mean come on, he has a lot of blood on his hands.

And i like the bit about praying for forgiveness, no wonder he has little time to run the country ~ that must be a full time job.

It all reminds me of an animation i saw where bush is tucked up in bed and cheney and rumsfeld (howerver you spell it) are whispering godly orders through the air vents to him.

Posted:ooh, yes please linden.

and, another note about bush lately... seems he's going to veto a spending bill because it contains a rider saying its not ok to torture people.....

"congress is trying to tie our hands in the war on terror", says the admin...

well, as a friend of mine put it.... if they think that torturing people is ok, then they d*mn well should have their hands tied.....

I think saddam was an ass, I'm glad hes gone. The US should have had him out of power in the 1990 gulf war. then there wouldn't have been such a stink with whats going on now.

Posted:note that these claims were made by the palestinian negotiator nabil shaath who says this was said during the june 2003 talks with israel.



i saw this on the news and if i remember correctly, he claimed bush said all this 'during a break' in the talks.



he said:



"president bush said to all of us:



"i am driven with a mission from god.

god would tell me, 'george, go and fight these terrorists in afghanistan'. and I did.

and then god would tell me, 'george go and end the tyranny in iraq'. and I did.

and now, again, i feel god's words coming to me, 'go get the palestinians their state and get the israelis their security and get peace in the middle east'. and by god, i'm gonna do it." "



no mention of it appears in the post-talks reports and the claims have not been substantiated by anyone else present.



i'm sceptical, not just of bush's competence but also of claims like this that can do little else apart from inflame the discussion of bush's already heavily criticised decision-making process.
